Ford Figo (automatic) to debut in India on July 22
American automaker Ford will launch the petrol-automatic variant of its Figo hatchback in India on July 22, as confirmed by an official teaser. The upcoming Figo (automatic) will offer a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox, linked to the existing 1.2-liter petrol engine. As far as design and features are concerned, it will be identical to the manual variant. Here's our roundup.
The Ford Figo (automatic) will feature a sloping roofline, a sculpted bonnet, a wide air dam, a blacked-out grille, halogen headlamps, a roof-mounted spoiler, and wrap-around taillights. On the sides, it will be flanked by blacked-out B-pillars, indicator-mounted ORVMs, and 15-inch alloy wheels. Dimensions-wise, the vehicle will be 3,941mm long, 1,704mm wide, and will have a wheelbase of 2,490mm.
The Ford Figo (automatic) will draw power from a BS6-compliant 1.2-liter naturally-aspirated petrol motor that delivers 95hp of maximum power and 119Nm of peak torque. Transmission duties will be handled by a 6-speed torque converter automatic gearbox.
The Ford Figo (automatic) will offer a spacious 5-seater cabin with fabric upholstery, power windows, an adjustable steering wheel, and automatic climate control. It will also pack four speakers and a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with support for Bluetooth connectivity. For safety, there should be six airbags, an engine immobilizer, crash sensors, a rear-view camera, and ABS with EBD.
The official pricing details of the Ford Figo (automatic) will be announced at the time of its launch on July 22. However, it will carry a slight premium over the manual variant, which starts at Rs. 5.82 lakh (ex-showroom).
